Vanguard University’s Enactus would like to again serve as a Community Tax Day Partner for the 2013 tax season. Enactus is an international organization, which strives to make a difference in the community. One such way is in helping underserved tax payers through programs such as VITA and Facilitated Self-Assist. Vanguard seeks to instill leadership and communicate skills in every student on campus. Thus, VITA is not only an incredible service opportunity for the community; it also services our students by preparing them for the real world after they graduate.

Furthermore, Enactus would like to give back to Vanguard, as many students can benefit from this service as well. The Enactus chapter at Vanguard University looks forward to making VITA a strong and vibrant service for the community this year.
